December 2000
Volume 5, Number 12

Shirley BrownThe soulful blues of Shirley Brown struck a chord with our main soul fan on the Blues Bytes staff, and her latest CD is this month's Pick Hit.

Veteran Georgia guitarist Johnny Jenkins could have been as famous as his early band mate Wilson Pickett, but he soured on the music business. He's recorded infrequently over the years, so every new release from Jenkins should be treasured. His latest is our December Surprise feature.

Looking for a Christmas present for that soul lover on your shopping list. Then look no further than the new Sam Cooke box set, featured as this month's Flashback selection.

This month's What's New section features reviews of new CDs from Tyrone Davis, Ronnie Lovejoy, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, Mark Selby, The Allman Brothers, and more, as well as re-issues of fine Rounder recordings from Johnny Adams, Boozoo Chavis, Roomful of Blues and Champion Jack Dupree. As an added bonus, we've added a second page of new CDs in order to clear out the backlog of discs waiting to be reviewed --- be sure to check this page for reviews of re-issues from Etta James, Robert Nighthawk, Cephas & Wiggins, the Hollywood All Stars, and Junior Wells, plus great new CDs from Norton Buffalo, Bruce Piephoff, Mr. Downchild and Eddy Clearwater.
